When to Change 1986 Chrysler Fifth Avenue Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1986 Chrysler Fifth Avenue? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 1986 Fifth Avenue’s oil should be changed according to Chrysler’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Fifth Avenue may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Chrysler if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Chrysler Fifth Avenue. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Chrysler Fifth Avenue?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Chrysler Fifth Avenue. Chrysler has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 1986 Chrysler Fifth Avenue vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Fifth Avenue's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Fifth Avenue by taking into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1986 Chrysler Fifth Avenue Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Chrysler Fifth Avenue? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Chrysler Fifth Avenue engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Chrysler oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Chrysler exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
